I've been thinking about moving to Austin in the next few months and I've been updating my resume and filling out applications, but I'm not sure what to ask for as far as wage requirements. I currently live in a small city and make $20.42/hr, but cost of living is fairly low. I know one person who I went to nursing school with who says he makes $26.50/hr base pay, but he is also 20 years older than me and has a 15 year EMS record. Is $26/hr base pay too much to ask for? How much do nurses make in Texas base pay? P.S. I have an ADN and 2 years ICU experience.
